FPM President’s Medal

The FPM President’s Medal is the highest honour FPM can bestow.

In the dynamic world of pharmaceutical medicine, landmark achievements and innovations in the specialty don’t always get the recognition they deserve. This is where the FPM President’s Medal steps in. This prestigious award recognises exceptional individuals or teams whose dedication have ignited transformative change within the field.

We’re delighted to announce that nominations are now open!

Making a nomination is a fantastic opportunity to give recognition to an individual or team whose contribution to pharmaceutical medicine has transformed lives, inspired others or driven change through their professionalism, commitment, creativity, and hard work.

We have deliberately kept the nature of qualifying contribution broad, and only stipulate that it be a contribution that has advanced the practice of pharmaceutical medicine.

Nominees could work within pharmaceutical medicine, including medical devices, or in another area, and they don’t have to be medical doctors.

The nomination process is simple: just let us know which individual or team you wish to nominate and outline why you think this person should receive the FPM President’s Medal.

FPM members can nominate anyone in the field whose contribution has transformed lives, inspired others or driven change!

Nominations will be closed on Thursday 4 April 2024

The Fellowship and Awards Committee will review all nominations on a case-by-case basis. Only the information submitted by the nominator will be considered and any conflicts of interest will be declared at the beginning of the review process.

The committee will judge each nomination on its individual merit, without reference to any specific criteria, with the final decision agreed by a vote. The nominated awardee will be presented to the Board for final approval.
